ARTIST ALAN FORBES ATTACKED, BENEFIT SHOWS ANNOUNCED
Pop surrealist and ‘form and function’ artist Alan Forbes was recently assaulted in his homely San Francisco. Two benefit shows with silent auctions are scheduled to help with medical expenses. Bands billed to perform include Black Cobra, Lecherous Gaze, and Hot Lunch.
Forbes has designed dark psych indulgent gig posters for the likes of Golden Void, Melvins, Graveyard, and Nik Turner’s Hawkwind.
On his Facebook page, he thanked everyone for their support: “I am healing up good and [there is] no permanent eye damage… I’m back at drawing and painting as well.”
